Just in time for summer 2012—The Moorings will offer sail, power, and skippered charters aboard monohulls and multihulls from Annapolis Landing Marina, near downtown Annapolis, Maryland, starting mid-May 2012.

And Sunsail opens its San Francisco base at Sausalito Yacht Harbor in June, with a new matched fleet of Sunsail First 40s. Racing, corporate hospitality & events, team building and incentive programs, bareboat and skippered charters, as well as a sailing school with courses based on the American Sailing Association curriculum are available.

The opening of the new Sunsail base is timed to events surrounding the 34th America's Cup. The 2012-2013 America's Cup World Series runs August 11-19, 2012, and August 27-September 2, 2012. The Louis Vuitton AC Challenger Series runs July 4-September 1, 2013; the 34th America's Cup is September 7-22, 2013.

The opening of The Moorings base in Annapolis is meant to expand accessable seasonal sailing options for U.S. clients with boats in the company’s worldwide fleet as well as attract new owners. A key aspect of the new incentive program includes offering owners unlimited access to their yachts. The Moorings also plans to open additional U.S. bases in Anacortes, Washington, and Miami, Florida. For details about base openings and ownership programs, contact the companies.
